I’d like to thank everyone who gave input on my previous post “Village Entertainment vs. Classic Cinemas.” Now I have another topic that I’d like input on.
I vaguely remember about 10 years ago that there was a cinema chain in the Metropolitan Chicago area called Meridian Theatres. As I recall, the chain did not last long at all. Could my fellow Cinema Treasures fans enlighten me on the following:
1) When did Meridian operate?
2) Why was the company founded?
3) Which cinemas were part of this chain?
4) What caused the demise of this chain?
5) Are any former Meridian Theatres still in operation as cinemas?
I’ve been having a lot of fun perusing this site since my friend and fellow CT'er Paul Fortini introduced me to it. Any information and insight you fellow CT'ers can give will be greatly appreciated!
